. >> look at the united states. we're thinking all of the states east of the mississippi plus throwing in minnesota iowa, montana, arkansas, louisiana the dakotas nebraska, kansas, we've lost an area -- larger than half the size of the united states. >> bill: yeah. what's left? california, oregon and washington. i mean -- >> scary. >> bill: that is really scary. now all of that ice melts. where does all of that water go? right? >> right. by the way -- >> bill: glug, glug, glug. >> that's in ten years' time that we've lost that much. that's sort of mind-blowing. >> bill: think how many centuries it took to build up the ice. so anyhow, it is frightening but jim inhoff and all of the other -- they don't care. they don't think it means anything. it is just cyclical. it will all freeze again next year. that's the way it works. mmm, man. what a line-up today. congressman chris van hollen, the ranking democrat on the budget committee. we haven't seen him in studio since charlotte. he was there with us in charlott
illinois, and they're our neighbors in missouri. >> he's the president of the united states, and that deserves respect. >> he's a nice guy. >> he's pretty good at basketball. >> one nice thing or three nice things if you like about president barack obama. >> who are you with? >> he speaks eloquently. >> he does have charisma. >> he'll be out in 68 days. >> this is romney's night. maybe you should go to charlotte. >> well, it's not really pulling teeth to get them to say something nice. some people could not come up with anything. we look forward to asking democrats next week in charlotte what they think of mitt romney. >> cenk: man, i was taken aback by senator shelby's response. that's a senator. he could say one nice thing about the president wow. we seem to have a theme there. plays basketball. family man and a snapgy dresser. >> caller: and there are so many things you would they could say. he gave me the tax cuts i need. he's a non-violent muslim. he's half white. at least something from these guys. >> the funniest part about saying he's a snapgy dresser left to his own
crackers in the united states senate would have ever voted for it if the pressure had not come from martin luther king and others with the civil rights movement? no way! look at healthcare reform. president obama could have ever got than passed without pressure from nurses and seniors and consumer groups and activist and labor unions around the country. no way! the truth always is, these members of congress are so entrenched that you have to have that pressure from the outside and it was only by building that pressure from the outside on the inside that president obama is able to get the affordable care act passed and yes, it is going to be the same thing with campaign finance reform. do you think these dodos are ever going to vote on their own for campaign finance reform? no, it will take a major movement on the part of the american people and pressure and demands on the part of the american people to get congress to act. so, i don't know. what do you think about this? 1-866-55-press. republicans are trying to say this
a united states senate. we have about seven republican senator who weren't elected but selected by the nine methods that these guys used to chew up your ballot. we have a senate congress and -- no one ever thought of wisconsin as a swing state until the coke brothers turned on their themist machine, and suddenly scott walker was renamed the [ inaudible ] of madison. >> stephanie: yeah. the last pole i saw obama is up what 14 in wisconsin? >> yeah but we won by 28 percentage points and then scott walker won on the recall. and how does that happen? there are magical things that occur in this world. al gore swept -- i mean swept florida in 2000 but if you remember, i discovered -- greg palast discovered how they wiped off thousands of voters and called them criminals. they were guilty of being black. robert more is a convicted criminal and now mrs. bobby black is voting. he went to jail and came back and changed his sex and really tricky changed his color. >> stephanie: wow. there is still time to steal back your vote. >> in "billionaires & ballot bandits: how
of the united states telling the people that he is going to get tough with china and iran when he actually invested in this. >> stephanie: i know. imagine what is in his actual tax returns from all of the time he was making this money at bain capital. this is stuff he was able to manipulate what he said earlier. so yeah, a lot more questions than answers. >> stephanie: all right. here is the jingle for this weekend. ♪ what huh-uh, i don't think so yes, he is i know ♪ ♪ yeah i know i know ♪ ♪ liberals everywhere to celebrate momma's sexy tour, yeah ♪ ♪ momma's going to celebrate a birthday too steph's going to bring an instruction cake and meet and grope with you, come on now ♪ ♪ celebration ♪ ♪ seattle is going to celebrate and have a good time ♪ ♪ celebration ♪ ♪ sexy liberal celebrate and have a good time ♪ ♪ i can kiss ♪ ♪ y'all know what i'm talking about ♪ ♪ here's the party, par-tay ♪ >> stephanie: thank you girls. can i bring that as a carry on my life size president obama. >> no tsa will shoot you. >> stephanie: queen bee in
? >> here the united states is a beacon of democracy to people around the world, and our republican leaders are saying to americans, we're going to make it harder for you to vote. >> stephanie: right. and one thing that is very key is voting is a right. it's not like driving is a privilege it's a right. >> that's right. and we have had big struggles in this country to make sure everybody has that right. so republicans are working very hard to turn back the clock when it comes to people's voting rights. it's a scandal. and the reason is they figure if they can limit people from voting, that -- the big money guys will be able to call the shots in the agenda. i guess we shouldn't have been surprised but during the % republican convention in tampa they had this big yacht show up to thank all of the romney dones or and it turned out it was from the cayman islands. >> stephanie: that's right. >> so mitt romney can send jobs overseas -- a lot of companies set up these fake fronts in the cayman islands, it's a way to offshore american profits and american jobs. >> when the
states getting barraged by this stuff. karl rove thought citizens united would be the ticket. they were going to write checks and buy the presidency and buy the white house. it is not working out that way and i think the real test in fund-raising will be october. if people realize that you know, is there going to be a conventional wisdom that this thing has completely flipped away from romney. because that was really the one advantage they had and as of today, even that has evaporated. >> john: i'm really shocked. i think you're right eric. one of the things we discussed on the current tv coverage of the conventions last week was how citizens united in the beginning was seen to completely help the g.o.p. and the irony is it has hurt republican voters because throughout the primary season, fans of real conservatives like gingrich or santorum saw their candidates mowed down by the mitt romney money machine so the republican race for the nomination citizens united hurt the conservative voting base. >> here's the other
a listen. >> governor romney, just because you bank against the united states of america doesn't mean the rest of us are willing to sell her out. >> booyah! >> it was the night of the woman. so america became a woman last night. you know, a great figure in the democratic party. people really like him 2016ish. they're kicking the tires on martin o'malley but at the same time it wasn't -- it wasn't one of the dazzling speeches that had some real dazzlers. >> stephanie: we'll get to that. for red meat and mama loves her some red meat, ted strickland, former ohio governor. let's listen again. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves. mitt has so little economic patriotism that even his money needs a passport! it summers on the beaches of the cayman islands and winters on the slopes of the swiss alps. >> yum yum yum. >> that was so good. i don't know how many rectoral votes he has but the democrats aren't going to win those. >> stephanie: isn't it interesting. we were talking ab
to the united states? was our tax money supporting that? >> no, he left the compound % because he rejected polygamy. >> when he was brought back wasn't he a small child? >> no, he was married before he came back. and served in the nixon administration, and ran for president, so it would be hard to hide a sister wife. >> stephanie: pete in chicago, you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi there, thank you for all of the fun and good work you are doing. and actually if somebody really looked at this 47% situation, i think romney has it backwards, because the people with the escalades, and wide-screen tvs are his base. and they are living on our money, which is the tax money they don't pay. so we're supporting them and they seem to have an insatiable appetite. and i'm 67. it was in business 24 years. many years i couldn't contribute to ira. i'm a little short of money. the taxes have gone up on my house. i have one lung, heart failure, i'm 67. if they kill social security and medicare to pay for these guys toys, i'm dead. i don't want pity, because i'm living
